The best things in life are free
With Covid causing everyone to stay indoors more, you and your partner might be in serious need of some fun activities to do outside. However, you don’t have to resort to burning a hole in your pocket to impress. Here are some things you can do without forking out anything.
Immensely popular among hikers and nature lovers, MacRitchie Reservoir, located just off Thomson Road, is home to landmarks that offer stunning views like the TreeTop Walk and Jelutong Tower. Before tackling the trails (even the shortest is a 6km walk!), make sure you and your date have water, and sunscreen and mosquito repellent on.
Be captivated by these majestic vertical gardens at Gardens By The Bay without paying a cent and in the evenings, you can expect a wonderful display of light and sound.
Other areas of the Outdoor Gardens which are free to the public include the Bay East Garden, Sun Pavillion, Heritage Gardens, World of Plants and Dragonfly and Kingfisher Lakes.
With so many green spaces in Singapore, a leisurely stroll makes a great date idea. Take your pick from these do-it-yourself walking guides from NParks.
We recommend Fort Canning Park, Southern Ridges, Keppel Island, Chinese Garden, as well as some lesser-known but equally beautiful nature trails.
Southeast Asia’s largest light and water show happens every night courtesy of Marina Bay Sands at the event plaza for about 15 minutes with water, fire, light, lasers and other impressive elements that will leave you in awe.
After that, take a romantic stroll along the Marina Bay Boardwalk to soak in the city lights.
Coney island is the place to be for picturesque views, whether you’re sticking to the main path (2.4km), following the signs to the beaches, or carving your own path off the beaten track. It’s pretty enough that many a wedding shoot has happened here.
